Description
  • Abstract

    This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from standard trend questions, instead focusing on information and communication technologies, financial services, and cultural activities. Respondents were questioned about how important it was to use a computer in their daily lives, whether and where they used a computer, for which uses a computer or the Internet was important, and which other communication products they used, such as cable TV and mobile phones. They were asked what type of computer training they had received, whether they worked remotely (telecommuted), whether communication technologies had been introduced at their workplace, if so, what the outcome had been, and how using a computer, e-mail, or the Internet had changed the way they worked. Respondents were further queried on financial services, governmental legislation of financial services, whether consumer protection standards should be harmonized within the European Union(EU), and what obstacles were preventing consumers from using financial services in the EU. They were asked about their preferred method of paying for significant purchases and the reasons for that preference, whether they used cards with a confidential code, and the types of financial accounts or loans they had. A final section focused on cultural activities and asked respondents which type of television programs they watched, whether they watched videos or DVDs, listened to the radio, or owned a computer, how often they used the Internet and for what purpose, how many books they had read in the past year, whether they read newspapers or magazines, and what types of music they listened to. They were asked to describe cultural activities they engaged in, types of media they had access to at home (such as a television set, records, CDs, video game player, books), and how many television sets, encyclopedias, and books they owned. Demographic and other background information provided includes respondent´s age, gender, nationality, marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of education, household income, region of residence, and subjective size of community.
